Thanks guys, I was finally able to build today after svn update and rebuild. No problems.
 
1) Used maven 2.0.2 to build geronimo-specs using steps from Bruce Snyder's email.
2) Used maven 1.1 beta2 to build geronimo using steps from the Wiki.
 
One of the things I did different this time was to build geronimo-specs in a different directory i.e $PROJECT_HOME/geronimo-specs (check out and build here, it updated $HOME/.maven respository appropriately for specs) and built geronimo in $PROJECT_HOME/geronimo. Not sure if this or svn update made the difference.

mvn install

at this point mvn just loops - any suggestions?

Hi Leonard,
Are you using Maven 2.0? If you aren't, then I suggest you upgrade. I've seen this behavior with Maven 2.0, but not Maven 2.0.2.

It looks to me like you're compiling from SVN HEAD which is actually
Geronimo 1.1. The error that you're getting is due to the fact that
the 1.1-SNAPSHOT version of the geronimo-corba_2.3_spec jar is not
available in any Maven repos. You can get around this by checking out
the Geronimo specs project and building it on your machine. Then
Geronimo HEAD should build correctly. Below are the steps:

1) Install Maven 2
2) Download the Geronimo specs trunk:

svn co https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/geronimo/specs/trunk

3) Compile the specs:

mvn install

4) Build Geronimo HEAD:

maven -Dmaven.itest.skip=true -Dmaven.test.skip=true new

Please let us know if you have any additional problems.
